values of the democratic party, which include social security, medicare, medicaid, are exempt, and we understand that's the case, certainly i agree that dennis has a point. certainly our caucus will review an awful lot of this with interest. i think if the president uses a scalpel, if he is not going after this with a hatchet, that that's an approach that can work. and we're happy to roll up our sleeves and work alongside the president. >> mr. kucinich, congressman, the deficit, the current fiscal year which ends at the end of september, is pretty high by any standards. of course, this president said it was well over $1 trillion in deficit. do we run the risk of rolling deficit after deficit and scaring the hell out of the money markets to the point we can't borrow any money for the chinese anymore? the dollar begins to shrink. isn't there a danger even as a liberal, aren't you worried about a shrinking dollar? or not? >> well, we should be concerned about the deaf silt. the question is, how do you deal with the deficit? and what most economists, who want to look at deficit reduction
